Wallasey Skip Hire FAQs
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small household tasks.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip might be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as clay and stone. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
How much does skip hire in Wallasey cost?
Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Wallasey. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip positioned on the street or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
No, you can only fill your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste materials up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you may be told to remove the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into several different waste types, such as stone, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of large quantities of waste materials. Primarily, these containers are used for industrial uses. Having said that, domestic customers can also use them. You should take into account the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and stone.
How can I order a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery address to look at the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Wallasey. Pick the size you want to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be located on private property. Enter your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
When your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with your booking details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, should you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Wallasey?
A local skip company will likely deliver your skip in Wallasey. We employ a network of both local and national businesses to allow us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are assessed to ensure they match the high principles we demand in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
What is a builders skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip that is used across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the biggest option that you can use for hefty materials like garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Can I put electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic products like old TVs, freezers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
What kinds of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip will depend on which skip size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy building wastes such as concrete or top soil, the maximum size you can use is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Wallasey?
Normally, it is possible to get your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you will need to have permission from the local council in Wallasey, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Do you deliver to other areas in Merseyside?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Wallasey, Litherland, Birkenhead, Haydock or another site in Merseyside, we can assist.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
In general, most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
